Fully titled The Journal Of John McDouall Stuart’s Second Journey Of Exploration April-July 1859.

This edition, published by The Friends Of The State Library Of South Australia (2002) was limited to just 300 copies, this being #28 of 99 deluxe copies bound in quarter-leather. It completes all six of Stuart’s journeys as printed in this series – the other five explorations are detailed in one volume, which is also in our collection (click here).

Gaining an exploration apprenticeship under Charles Sturt, Stuart went on to complete six major explorations of his own, enduring some of the most inhospitable conditions and terrain imaginable, without losing a single member of his team – truly extraordinary.
